Self-deaths from PICCR

Palestine Today refers to a report by the Palestinian Independent Commission for Citizens’ Rights saying that 9 people were killed in April in the Palestinian Arab territories due to "security chaos":

Four deaths occurred against the backdrop of family quarrels or disputes, including one in the West Bank and three in the Gaza Strip, and 3 cases of death due to negligence and failure to take safety precautions and in the West Bank, and the death of one against the background of the so-called honor of the family in Gaza, the situation of one death occurred in the Gaza Strip as a result of tampering with arms, also made of the 3 cases of deaths due to accidents and tunnels in the Gaza Strip.

Unfortunately, I don't have details, but I think I have captured all of these in my counts.

The PICCR website bizarrely includes links to various small business websites in the US, and it doesn't look like it has changed for years.
